U.S. Cellular announced on Wednesday that it is now offering postpaid plans and devices in Sam’s Club locations.
The services are available in 14 different states and in 47 different Sam’s Club locations. Stores in Iowa, Illinois, Maryland, Maine, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin are already stocked with phones and are ready to sell services, and U.S. Cellular said preparations are being made in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas for a May 7 launch.
The carrier said that anyone who picks up a device in Sam’s Club will be treated as a standard U.S. Cellular customer, confirming that there aren’t any hidden fees, and even noted that the $35 activation fee will be waived for devices that are purchased in the retail outlets. Sam’s Club will carry a full gamut of devices, including the new Galaxy S4.
